2.1 Testimonial written by Ashley from Clementi Westwood Secondary School
The first lesson with Mr. Lim changed my whole perspective and attitude towards POA. This was the subject I could never gather much interest, hence being one of my worst subject.
However, his teaching was remarkably easy to understand and in such a way that I was able to attain the surprising good result that I never imagined I would get in my 'O' level results.
2.2 Testimonial l written by Teo Wayne from Maris Stella High School
Mr. Lim is a very dedicated tutor. He possess defined knowledge in Maths and is a highly qualified teacher. With a great sense of respo nsibility, he took the effort to source for questions of difficulties for my practice. Under his tutorship, he assisted me in achieving excellent and outstanding grade for both my mathematics. Thank you Mr. Lim.
I have taught in MOE schools (CHIJ, ST Margaret etc) for about three years and full time home tutors for about 9 years for A/E Maths and Principles of Accounts. Hence, I am extremely familiar with latest MOE syllabus for these three subjects. Therefore, I maintain 100% passing rate for all the three subjects, Principles of Accounts and A/E Maths since 2010.
I also teach accounting subjects for SIM, MDIS, Nanyang Poly, NTU Level 1 and A level students.
2.0 Methods of Teaching
2.1 Grades Improvement
I managed to improve grades of my tutees, through building rapport with them, patience, close monitoring of their work and continuous encouragement.
2.2 Feedback from students
Collect assignments from tutees so that I can assess whether he or she understands my lessons well. I also correct their wrong concepts immediately so that they dont make the same mistakes in their exams. I will never spoon-feed the student. I will always pose questions to the students so as to train his or her critical thinking skills to get the correct concepts and answers. The student must be able to see the logic and purpose behind every step and not just apply blindly without understanding.
Continuous methods of teaching in commitment
Commitment Level 2.3 Train the correct concepts for the new topic.
If the student does not immediately get the concept, I am very patient and will use other techniques to explain the concept again until the student fully understands without putting pressure on the student.
2.4 Revision before the exam
I am exam oriented and can guide my students to do well for their exam by focusing their attention on key points. Hence, I provide Maths Formulae and Principles of Account revision notes so that they can recall and recap their correct concepts before the examination. Good materials will help the students to do well for their subjects.
2.5 Teamwork Parents, Students and Tutor
I always believe parents, tutee and tutor should work together as a team. I will try to get the feedback from the tutees parents to find out more about the student so that I can use an appropriate technique to teach my tutee. Students commitments and hard work are the key factors to achieve a good result for their subjects. If they do not work hard for their grades, even the best tutor also cannot help them.
